Union organizers from around the country — including Christian Smalls of the Amazon Labor Union — met with the president, vice president, and secretary of labor on Thursday.
In a tweet, President Joe Biden said, "From the Amazon Labor Union to IATSE at Titmouse Productions, these folks are inspiring a movement of workers across the country to fight for the pay and benefits they deserve."
According to a White House readout, Biden thanked the organizers for their leadership and roles in the current organizing swell.
"Meeting the president was an unbelievable surprise, and I'm so glad he was able to hear our stories as well!" Alex Speidel, a lead organizer with United Paizo Workers/CWA who attended the meeting, told Insider in a text.
